Braxton County is a county in the F.S. state of Sierra. Located in central Sierra, it has an area of 1827.49 km² and a population of 288,450. Braxton county was named after F.S. General Lovell Braxton.

History

The Fortín de Lola was built in 1820 in what is now Lola, shortly after followed by houses of the wives and families of the soldiers. Lola grew into a significant city within the next few decades, and was the town with the most Castellanese architecture and heritage.

In 1849 Lola passed to FSA control, with the Castellanese Army increasingly unable to maintain control over frequent raids by both native Archantans, and encroachment by Federal States farmers from further east. General Lovell Braxton was named first commander of the Lola area. The county was established in 1850 as the first in the state. It initially included land on both sides of the Colurona, and extended much further west and south.

Communities

Lola is the county seat and most populous city in the county. Holborn and Corona are two major towns in the county. Other built-up areas include Howard, Aston and Ostona.

Transport

Braxton County is served by the FS-81 highway in Lola and in the east, the S-11 highway in the north, and an intrastate route which runs diagonally across the county. The county has also set up 13 county routes.
